Donetsk oblast, Ukraine – July 2014


  1. Like many places, the silent majority who is frustrated by those who perpetuate violence, grieves for those who lost their lives, plus her fellow citizens. If only leaders who make violence happen understood this.


  2. This photo was on the cover page of the Los Angeles Times on July 23rd. Since then, I just couldn’t get it out of head again. This old woman, holding these beautiful flowers and grieving… she is just so unspeakably dignified and caring. No words can describe that. Thanks for putting it up on your website!
